One thing you have to remember is that torque wrenches are considered to be "in calibration" if they can repeat a torque setting within 10% on 3 seperate pulls. Usually they will repeat much closer than that but I honestly doubt there will be more than a 10% variation between the test with and without the extension. In other words I doubt you'll see enough difference to make any definite conclusion but if the variation falls within 10% I think we can say that effectively there is not enough difference to have a detrimental affect on the final torque at the fastener. We shall see.........
